Am I more at risk if my relatives have cancer and What do cancer stages and grades mean?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, approximately 5-7 %cancers are hereditary, so it's not the must that one would suffer but certain cancers have more risk Of being hereditary like breast, ovarian, colon etc. Cancer stage means the size of tumour and it's spread. Grade means howmuch the tumour cells have deviated from the normal cells. Higher the stage or poorer the grade, worse is the prognosis.

Colon Cancer - Is It Treatable?

MBBS, MD-Radio Therapy

Colon Cancer - Is It Treatable?

Cancer in colon forms due to uncontrolled cell growth in the large intestine cells. Most colon cancers originate from the healthy cells in the lining of the colon that grow into tumors called adenomatous polyps. These polyps can be cancerous or benign. A cancerous tumor is malignant and may spread to the other parts of the body by traveling through blood and lymph systems, this process is known as metastasis. Whereas a benign tumor can grow but don’t necessarily spread to other parts of the body. It takes years for these changes to develop depending upon both genetic and environmental causes.

Causes and risk factors:
In a healthy body, the cells normally grow, divide and then die. Cancer is the result of uncontrollable cell growth where the cells do not die. Aging is one of the important risk factors for colon cancer; other risk factors include a family history of colon cancer. As per Johns LE and Houlston RS individuals with a family history of colon cancer have a high risk of developing this form of cancer as compared to those with no such history. A study conducted by Giovannucci and others in 1995, successfully established the relation between physical activity, obesity and colon cancer. As per the research lack of physical activities elevates the chance of getting colon cancer. Individuals who regularly smoke, are obese and use aspirin have a higher risk of developing this form of cancer. Diet is also an important factor, diets that are high in fat and low in fiber may elevate the risk.

Symptoms:
The symptoms of colon cancer vary, depending upon the condition of the tumor. At the early stage, patients may experience no symptoms. However, as cancer grows, symptoms arise.

Diarrhea or constipation are common and patients may see changes in stool consistency and narrower stool.

  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Bloating
  • Fullness and cramps may also indicate colon cancer.
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Unexplained iron deficiency (anemia) are also associated with this form of cancer.

If these symptoms last for several weeks, don’t hesitate to consult your physician.

Treatment:

  • Colon cancer is highly treatable and depends on the type and the stage of cancer along with health and other characteristics of the patient. However, there is no single treatment; the most common options are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
  • The surgery for colon cancer is known as colectomy and involves removing the affected part of the colon and the adjoining areas including nearby lymph nodes.
  • Chemotherapy involves killing the cancer cells by utilizing certain chemicals that interfere the cell division process and damage the proteins or DNA. In the radiation therapy, high-energy gamma rays are used to target and destroy the cancer cells. Radiotherapy can be used both as a standalone treatment and also along with other treatments.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your aunt. Apparently, your aunt has been administered neo-adjuvant chemotherapy to reduce the tumor size so that it can be surgically resected later on. You need to do a risk benefit analysis with help from your onco-surgeon, and take a decision accordingly, fast. Simultaneously, an integrative treatment with alternative medicines can be of help in improving clinical outcomes. You can revert with all relevant details for further naturopathic traction. Do take care, and all the very best.

I am a 20 year old girl. I suffered nasopharynx carcinoma due to which I had to undergo chemo and radiation. As a side effect of which my salivary glands are damaged. Saliva production is minimum. Please suggest me ways to boost my saliva.

It must be difficult for you. You should do your gargles regularly with hexidine mouth wash. And there are many artificial saliva sprays available.

My mother had breast cancer and it is spread to liver. Chemotherapy is going on with the drug MITOTAX 130 mg for 12 weeks now. And doctor said we need to continue for 6 more weeks. But my mother became very week and can we hold on for some time and I read that the mitotax injection is given once in 3 weeks is that true? And is it because of which my mother became week? Please help me. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, From the reports I understand that she has stage 4 Cancer. In such situation chemotherapy is not very useful. The drug needs to be changed to oral Chemotherapy. That will not make her weak and is easy to handle. Consult your Doctor.
